10 hour shift. The day started out very muggy. Started out with a woman who fell and banged her knee a block from the hospital and wanted a ride in. We transfered a man from a VA with dsypnea to a local ER, took a patient from another ER to another hospital where his kidney specialists were, took a patient from a nursing home to an ER because her fever just wouldn't come down with antibiotics, did a hypoglycemic refusal and ended the day with a woman with a bleeding bed sore. At one point there was a torrential downpour, but fortunately we were doing a half hour transport so didn't get wet. I was in the back with the patient and was so mesmerized by the rain I forgot to call the hospital to let them know we were bringing in the lady with the fever. It was no big deal.

Back for another eight tomorrow.
